't think it's ever been a secret, though. i mean you look at the george w. bush. >> this reinforces maybe? >> right. i don't think that's in dispute -- i wondhe were not to change topics. the president where he announces he was going to go out fighting for tax cuts, to extends the bush tax cuts for those making under 250,000, how that will play with the broader g.o.p. but mostly how mr. romney will respond to that. >> right. so daniel stone covers the white house for newsweek daily beast, mentioning that as we talked it hasn't yet been announced. it's not officially yet on the president's schedule but it's reported this morning widely that the president will make an announcement in the rose garden sometime today where he will call for congress to extend the nother year for every american making under $250,000 a year. which, of course is the vast majority, the 99%. >> right. >> and those making over $250,000, their taxes would go would go back up. whether he can get it through congress or not, right, i guess, the question is: the political viability of
, you say who came up with this. >> i heard yesterday george w. bush said he retroactively resigned before the iraq war started. >> their campaign has given us the etch-a-sketch. talk about message discipline, this is not a campaign. you know another thing that occurs to me campaign that is run so poorly, you begin to wonder whether the guys managerial skills, the only thick he is running on, really exist. >> what is amazing, they have narrowed his whole appeal to bain capital. right? his experiences at bain. not governor of massachusetts. >> that's right. >> not his leadership of the olympics. it's all about bain capital. >> right. >> they sort of, you know built their own nest here. >> the reason they can't talk about his tenure as governor is he actually did something good as far as health care with an individual mandate. in the world of the republican party, that's become anathema. one thing he may have talked about substantively is off the table. >> with an individual mandate and a responsibility penalty if you don't buy it or whatever they
it happened under george w. bush. doesn't give the guy credit for wanting -- for opposing him on healthcare. opposes him on trying to give 98% of americans a tax cut. romney, barack obama -- he said nice guy but in over his head. then he accuses obama of running a negative campaign? and then he has the audacity to say hey i'm against everything you stand for but look at me! i'm your friend. >> if you want a president who will make things better in the african-american community you are look at him. >> bill: oh, god. >> romney: take a look.

's the impact is same as george w. bush that two state solution and they have got to stop building the settlement. bush said that day-in and day-out. as you know, bush never went to israel in his first term. right? so i just think i guess maybe we have an obligation as reporters to try to find out what the truth is you know. >> right. no. i hear you. this speech, itself is interesting and it comes a couple of days after obama signed legislation that increases military aid to israel but looking at romney's remarks, he made the point that as american shouldn't just be military intelligence and those who seek to undermine israel maybe out over the base but i have not really heard recently an implicit specific case made as to what those criticisms are. i am not a foreign policy expert by any extent. >> one other thing when romney is in jerusalem, he gives an interview to david muir of abc and david muir said you travel overseas but you still got these political problems back at home. there is a lot of flap about your tax returns and romney repeated he was on

attacks than even george w. bush and dick cheney launched not that i am entirely happeny with those. one thing you can't say is president obama has been soft on terror. two other aspects about the romney campaign i wanted to talk with you about this morning and get your comments on. first of all mitt romney's first stop is the olympics. this is one that is a little fraught with danger on at that couple of fronts three fronts, i would say. one is that romney is using the olympics, of course, as a chance to raise money. it's got a fundraiser with the very people we were just talking about with eliot spitzer from barclay's bank. the very people who were in the heart of this rigging the rates on bank loans, thereby impacting consumers worldwide including mortgage home loans, car loans and whatever here in the united states. clark clay's bank giving a fundraiser for mitt romney. he doesn't care if they are under investigation in the u.k. he doesn't care if there are hearings in the united states about this. he is walking into a fund razor $75,000 $75,000 a
the opportunity i was referring i remember that george w. bush in 2000 when he was running made some statement -- i know i'm paraphrasing horribly here -- when he said these people in congress ought to realize you can't balance the budget on the backs of the poor or something. he differed from the republican leadership on congress. this was an opportunity for romney to say you know, let's just be honest with the american people right? what this is if you don't buy -- if you can afford insurance and you don't buy it, you're going to have to pay a penalty. there was an opportunity to show some independence. >> right except the problem was it was -- what would otherwise have been a high-minded move. this is about semantics. what it is what it is. it was undermined by the fact it was a defensive thing. it was fighting a long-ago battle about what he did in massachusetts. i think a lot of people seem to be under the impression john roberts went in and changed the legislation somehow. it is all about him trying to find a way to
